Thanks for the reply Darren....I looked at the supported devices on the bt sport page and only mentioned samsung smart TV not Sony.....but this might be out of date or there might be a workaround.
So if there is such a small group of us with this problem is your system sophisticated enough to use the old protection on our apps?
Or are we at the point where we decide to cancel BT Sport or buy a new TV?
@Rob221 where do you select the different feeds? I did look about but couldn't find.....
On another note...went to curry's today to look at tvs even though I don't need a new tv. Presumably you still can't get had app on Sony?
Well, my BT Sport App works perfectly on both our Samsung and Sony TVs. As for the Sony, it is 3 years old now.
I have encountered this issue for the first time today whilst wanting to watch the live MotoGP coverage on my Samsung UE40F6740SBXXU via the BT Sport app on a Roku NOWtv decoder box.
After just a few seconds I get a frozen screen of scrambled green/pink lines with audio only.
I’ve performed system updates to both decoder and TV to no avail.
I hope BT can find a solution as I’m now limited to watching on a 4” iPhone screen.
There haven't been any other reports of it happening on a Roku device @ruts66 - that'll be a completely different issue to the one being described in this thread. Best I can suggest at this point is trying a factory reset of the device. I'll ask the Roku team tomorrow if they have any other ideas.

Your Samsung is a "proper" Smart TV. Why not simply download the BT Sport app from the Store, provide your BT login details and away you go.
No freezes, no buffering, good footie and MotoGP.
Same issue here watching on app via NOW tv box. I have a 2016 now tv box connected to a 2011 samsung in my sons room and the BT app works fine. Ive got a 2016 now tv box connected to a 2015 sumsung in another room and the BT app live channels freeze after 30 secs and the audio carries on. Is there any update on the settings change done by BT effecting NOW tv BT apps. I stream all tv and have a over 200mbps download, sky sports, amazon, netflix etc all stream fine on multiple devices, only problem is BT sport live channels.
This thread is very specifically about the Samsung app running directly on Samsung TVs.
There are no known issues with Roku devices behaving live this @Mark2049 - being connected to a Samsung TV wouldn't make a difference.
